About


Welcome to Bristol Yacht Club, where our outstanding amenities combine with the historic and picturesque charm of Bristol, Rhode Island, to make a perfect landing spot for visiting boaters. At BYC, we welcome both visiting cruising clubs and individual cruisers. All are welcome to enjoy our easily accessible moorings and Club facilities.

A rental at BYC includes free launch service to our docks, grounds and newly renovated Clubhouse … and to the Independence Park dock for access to downtown Bristol with its many restaurants, shops and historic treasures.

We welcome you to tie up dockside to take on water and purchase ice – and to chat with our friendly staff about all Bristol has to offer. We invite you to use our launch or dinghy dock to access our bathrooms and showers (open 24/7), and our playground, gas BBQ and picnic areas.

Our Clubhouse, completely updated in 2019, offers a relaxing bar, lounge and a porch overlooking the harbor – a perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail while chatting with new and old friends. Or pull up an Adirondack chair dockside, steps from our outdoor bar and play area.

It is a short “country” walk from our property to enjoy the beauty of Colt State Park and the family-favorite Coggeshall Farm. Just steps away you can rent paddle boards, kayaks and bicycles – a perfect way to have fun on Bristol harbor waters or the East Bay Bike Path.

For extended cruisers, we’ll direct you to area supermarkets, hardware stores, laundry, sailmaker, and marine supplies and repairs.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bristol Yacht Club – a proud recipient of the 2019 Boater’s Choice Award! Visit our website for more details and directions to our Club.

We met a friend at Bristol for Wednesday night racing at BYC, and won line honors in our class on his boat. Great racing, good meal, friendly staff, nice harbor - excellent stay.

Great place. Friendly and helpful staff at the dock and bar, and I got an escort to my mooring. Wifi was down, but they were still getting some of the early season bugs out of the system.

We loved this club. Had a nice cookout on the lawn, loved the service of the launch drivers. Happily got water. Only wish they had fuel in Bristol!

Launch driver has great hospitality and personality. Could not have been a more pleasant stay. We did not use the launch as we arrived after 5:00pm and stayed on the boat so I cannot address facilities but the welcome and follow-up were exceptional!

Excellent launch service! Thank you for your help in finding our mooring while the winds were howling 🌊

The launch will take you to the club, where there are bathrooms and showers, and you can take a really nice walk in the country (head left, take the path to Coggeshall Farm museum) or the launch can also take you to a dock across the harbor and you can walk to downtown Bristol and bars and restaurants in 5 minutes. A lot to do, great service.

BYC is lovley, very accommodating. It was beautiful stay with the exception of the 3.5 inches of rain on Saturday ! We will come back again 👍🏻😎

This would usually be an excellent place to pick up a mooring at relatively little expense, and with an excellent ferry service to take you ashore and back; but with the wind due South quite a sea can pile up. We also have had endless hassles with Dockwa claiming payment has been refused while my bank insists no request for payment by Dockwa has been made.
